2021-22 Science Fair

Marianapolis hosted its annual Science Fair on April 21, with students presenting in-person for the first time in two years.

 

Students were set up in classrooms throughout the main building and presented to judges virtually through the Clear Touch boards. Families were given the opportunity to drop by their student's classroom to wish them luck before heading to a Parent Reception hosted in the Student Lounge.
